Before any work commences you need to check out prospective Tunbridge Wells plasterers to see if they know their stuff. Ask to see some photos or a portfolio of completed projects. Getting stuck with a bunch of "cowboys" doing your plastering is a situation that you want to avoid at all costs. Though it may not always be immediately obvious, inferior plastering can lead to big problems down the line.

The defects will soon show up on the freshly plastered wall the moment a coat of paint has gone onto it. They'll look even worse with the sunlight shining on them. So, make sure you only consider decent plasterers in Tunbridge Wells.

It is always good to remember that plaster must be smooth and level, because it is simply a base on which other materials are applied. A shoddily plastered area will lead to severe issues with any area of tiling (kitchens or bathrooms), the accurate fitting or skirting boards, the painting and decorating of walls and ceilings and the installation of kitchen units.

What you really need is the perfect finish straight from the trowel, and skillful Tunbridge Wells plasterers can be trusted to produce results like this. Sanding (especially by machine) should never be necessary on newly plastered ceilings and walls, a quick rub down with fine glasspaper is all that should be needed. Actually, if any significant amount of sanding is needed, you can assume that your plasterer was not as skilled as was claimed. Be very suspicious of re-hiring plasterers who make use of orbital sanders.

Plastering and Coving Tunbridge Wells

One of the most commonplace tasks for plasterers nowadays, is plastering over old artexed ceilings. Artex was at its height of popularity in Tunbridge Wells during the 70's and 80's, but right now it is out of fashion. Those artexed ceilings can be made to look sleek and modern once again by calling in your Tunbridge Wells plasterer to cover them up. Those of you who are more retro in taste might want your artex ceilings restored and brought back to their former glory.

Rendering Tunbridge Wells: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process whereby a mix of lime, cement, sand and water is applied to external (and now and again internal) walls to achieve a smooth or textured surface. Rendering is extremely popular all around Europe and is particularly common in the Mediterranean region. A rendered finish is waterproof and has some fire retarding qualities, although it's predominately used for cosmetic purposes. While it is possible to apply paint to a rendered wall, an even better solution is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting end result.

Dry Lining Tunbridge Wells (Plasterboarding): Several plasterers in Tunbridge Wells also provide dry lining services, which will be required in plenty of home improvements. Dry lining is the process where plasterboard is fixed to a metal framework, a brickwork surface or a timber studding or joist to form a wall surface that does not need plastering. While it's possible to decorate the plasterboard surface itself after a bit of filling, generally most opt to get the plasterboard skimmed with a fine plaster coating afterwards to give it an extra smooth finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a metal framework self-tapping (or Jack-Point screws) are used, when fixing plasterboard to wooden studding or joists, drywall screws or nails are used and when fixing to a brick or masonry wall the "dot and dab" method is used.
